    I use my 16 and my 24 in clubs/bar most have WiFi I suspect I’m getting interference. It does not happen at every place. using linksys 802.11a/b/g with high gain antenna. should I be using a AirPort Extreme because its MIMO technology? I know my Ipad3 support N and I do plan on using 2 tablets a mini and the 3 at the same time. Any experience is welcome I need 100-125ft range

    Anything 5 GHz is probably a good bet.

    so that’s my problem 🙂 I always have great line of sight, but sometimes at even a 5 -10 feet I lose connection. Much of my connections issues on the 16 were that silly internal cable but that is resolved. 5ghz range line of sight good? AirPort Extreme because its MIMO technology? since I will be having more then 1 device access the mixers?

    The obvious question is “why do you suspect interference”
    Along with “Do you scan and choose a clear channel?”

    And “What router do you use at the moment”

    I use a Linksys G 2.4 I use tomato firmware and when I have problems it does seem to be when 3 or 4 other routers are nearbye

    Ok, I’d have a look at the channels in use (are you on auto?) and/or shift to 5 Ghz

    Id have to get new router for 5ghz I always had great range with the special firmware Linksys 2.4 but they seem to be very sensitive to other gear interfering. I’m hoping some gave give me some experience on the best choice. Because when 1 or 2 other WiFi is around it works great.

    Do you have an android device around which could run a network scanner for you? That would show you what networks were broadcasting at what power and on which channels…

    Oh Im pretty sure its other 2.4ghz stuff the places I see in my scan have sometime 4 channels being used near bye, I have reboot to change channels on the router. now I just need a find a 5gh one that has beamforming feature

    IIRC, The idea of MIMO devices is not to allow multiple connections per se. It uses multiple antennae to create multiple data channels based upon multipath propagation. It actually works better indoors than outdoors, as the reflections and interference patterns of the building create the multipath propagation.
